Dove Pro-age body lotion, worth it or not? I approve of their advertising and it's making me consider it. Or is the one you use better?
I usually buy E45 lotion body lotion which is non greasy and quickly absorbed (get me, I sound like an advert myself) but tempted by Dove's ads featuring real women I am considering their body lotion. Is it any good? It's £5 which doesn't compare favourably to £2.19 for E45 but is it worth it?
I am that particular kind of consumer who doesn't mind spending £20 on a mascara as long as it's good. TIA for any views and recommendations of alternative body lotions. I cannot stand those that mean you have to hang about waiting for hours for them to dry btw, I haven't got time in my life for that.
I've got one of them (there are 2 different versions) and I'm not hooked. It's OK, but you need to be quite sparing with it, or you feel greasy for ages. Having said that, once you've got the quantity right, it's pretty good. But I don't think I'll be buying it again. Will probably last for ages though. I'll just go upstairs and check which one I have...
I have the neutrogena one and it's not greasy at all, absorbs really quickly. It's ok but not amazing, but if you don't have very dry skin then maybe it's good enough.
IMO the best ones are the body butters from Body Shop. My favourite one is the mango, but there are different ones for different skin types. They're a little bit expensive but worth it. You can buy the small travel pot just to try.
Sorry, my answer has nothing to do with the Dove lotion, does it?....
Palmer's coco butter is very nice, but I don't think it absorbs that well. It really takes some effort to rub it in. Also the novelty of the chocolate smell wears off after a couple of weeks and then becomes quite annoying. I couldn't wait to finnish it
Neal's Yard rose body cream - pricey but lasts for ages and smells mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
rich but not slimy
can you tell I don't get out much?
